    How do I Export Windows Mail Data to Outlook 2007?

    What is the name & location of the stored data file for Windows Mail? Eg: In
    Outlook it's the OUTLOOK.PST file in the ...\Application
    Data\...\Microsoft\Outlook\ folder. Whait is the equivellent in Windows Mail?

    Can I use Windows Mail in Windows XP?

    Basically, I have both XP & Vista running on 2 separate PCs. I want to
    consilidate my email contacts and other data to run just in Outlook 2007 on
    the Win XP PC. I therefore need to get the Windows Mail data off the Vista PC
    and import it in to Outlook on the XP computer.

    Any help PLEASE!

    You would I believe have to set up Outlook 2007 on the Vista PC in order to
    export Windows Mail to it, and any Contacts.
    Then copy / move the resultant pst file to eg My Documents on the WinXP PC.
    Then Open Outlook, File>Open>Data File........browse to the location of this
    pst, open it. Then copy data from this set of Personal Folders to your
    default set.

  3. Outlook must be installed on the same machine.
    File | Export | Messages | Microsoft Exchange
    In Windows Mail go to Tools | Oprions | Advanced | Maintenance and click
    Ftore Folder.
